Waking up early on vacation is a total bummer, but I simply can’t miss the Magic Kingdom rope drop show on my first morning in the World. But today’s tip will have you jumping out of bed with a big grin on your face, ready to seize the Disney day with gusto: schedule a wakeup call from your favorite characters!
Using the “wake-up call” button on your resort phone, schedule your call for whatever time you want. The next morning, let your kids answer the phone when it rings, and watch their little faces light up with delight as Mickey and Stich encourage them to get out of bed.
Couple of tips: schedule your call for an “off-time,” like 7:06 a.m. instead of 7 a.m.—you’re more likely to get the character greeting. Also, when you pick up the phone, make sure you say, “hello.” The recording is voice activated.
